Updates on injuries to Kent players Darren Stevens and Grant Stewart

By Josh Fordham

Darren Stevens will hopefully return to the Kent side for their opening match of the Royal London One-Day Cup after missing their last game through injury.

The 42-year-old was left out of the side for their win at home to Sussex in the Specsavers County Championship after picking up a groin injury.

Stevens has already picked up 18 Championship wickets in the three matches he has played in.

Grant Stewart is also due to have a scan on a recurrence of a hamstring injury during that win against Sussex.

He could only bowl 6.5 overs in the first innings and then did not bowl in the second.

Head coach Matt Walker said: “For Grant it is frustrating. It is the hamstring injury he picked up in Antigua.

“He got himself right for the start of the season and it reoccurred in the Gloucestershire game and it has flared up one more time. I don’t know what the timeframe is on it.

“He will have a scan to see if there is anything lurking there and get it looked at properly.

“He is devastated as you can imagine. He played a big part in this game. He’s frustrated and feels he has let the team down. But far from it, he contributed with the bat in both innings and picked up the big wicket of their captain in the first innings.”

Mitch Claydon continues his recovery from a hand injury and played for Folkestone 1sts on Saturday.

He took two wickets for no runs in his first over against HSBC but the match was abandoned after just 20 overs.

James Tredwell remains out due to a shoulder injury.
